Aireys Inlet Precinct 1 Roads and Drainage Works – Update July 2012
At a meeting with the AIDA committee in July 2012,Sunil Bhalla, Surf Coast Shire Director of Infrastructure, announced there is to be a review of the Aireys Inlet Precinct 1 roads and drainage works. A requirement from the citizen’s jury process in Precinct 1 is for council to conduct a review of the implementation of the Precinct’s Special Charge Scheme works. AIDA’s input was sought to determine the method to be used by the shire for this review. Committee members who participated in the Fairhaven roads and drainage Special Charge Scheme survey recently distributed by the shire were concerned at the format of that survey and felt there was a need for more specific qualitative data outcomes rather than the interpretive possibilities within the Fairhaven survey. AIDA has subsequently submitted a detailed property-owner questionnaire to the Infrastructure Department, which we feel is a better evaluative tool, designed to elicit more accurate responses on the actual works and their results.
